Keen to take advantage of the ongoing tariff war amongst the mobile companies, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has asked telecom service operators for information on cheaper calls and SMS tariffs to keep its bill short.
A TV news channel reported that it has a copy of a letter written on January 4 in which the PMO asked various service providers for details of their schemes on ISD, STD and roaming calls.
Report said that the PMO is looking for 50 GSM connections with ISD and STD/SMS facilities, 25 compatible Blackberry connections, special number series, national and international roaming and internal building solutions for uninterrupted signals.
Also, it wants that the telecom operators ensure uninterrupted connectivity in the high security zone.
The PMO is fixed January 15 as a deadline for all operators to send in their proposals.
Officials of the PMO currently use Bharti Airtel mobile service.
Telecom companies have cut rates drastically for calls and SMSs in the last three months.
